The Midlands’ Local Center For Philanthropy

Central Carolina Community Foundation is a nonprofit organization that links charitable people and businesses with areas of need in our community.

We were founded in September 1984 by business leaders who wanted to establish a permanent endowment that would enhance the lives of citizens in the Midlands.

Our Mission

Our mission is to promote, facilitate, and increase philanthropy to create a sustainable impact within our community through responsible giving.

To fulfill our mission, we:

  • Encourage individuals, families, and businesses to partner with us to fulfill their charitable goals
  • Make grants to support community issues in the Midlands of SC and, through our generous donors, throughout the world
  • Steward $140 million in assets across more than 400 charitable funds with our Trustees oversight
  • Convene people to strengthen our community
  • Collaborate to develop creative solutions for community needs
  • Nurture and strengthen community organizations
  • Build a substantial endowment to provide for community needs for generations to come
